lyrics

Boy, you’ve such frustration now; scrawl it on a bathroom wall, something clever and profound; stake your claim in the unrest. To be painted over next day by underpaid employee who’s just doing what he’s told, an un-recruited thinker in this cause you can’t define. Son, you’re an up-and-comer now; help me help you cheat by the rules. In this, together, we’ll go far — migrating, swift, well-weathered sharks. But I’ve got values sir, I strive to draw a straight, absolute line the likes of which I’d never cross if it meant debasing my beloved democratic process! (You’ll value what’s important to major campaign contributors. Don’t try to stand on moral ground we’ll find another smiling talking head who’s willing to comply!) A falling knife has no handle. Success breeds a lineage to supersede, to dominate the meek. The prize: personal gain, satisfactory device.
I cannot say that I might ever define or describe a path to an equally fulfilling life, the standards to which everyone concedes, the common steps not consequent to socially acceptable individual greed. Don’t try to catch this falling knife.
